I get that the idea is to change the way we view marriage, and I think it's a good one, but the more fundamental issue is that the vows. like too many other things, are unenforceable. The whole institution has been undermined by a total lack of judicial certainty of outcomes. Contracts and agreements of any sort are bad when the terms are unclear and its anyone's guess what a judge, subjected to limited judicial review, will find "equitable." Maternal bias is rampant, and given wings by flawed domestic violence research, but the winner take all nature of divorce is increasingly making it a game of Russian Roulette for women too.
